I like to work with Cocoa, PHP, HTML5, and servers. I have six Apple certifications, including the System Administrator certification. On the side, I really enjoy running cross country and track. I've also done a lot of work for various companies.

You can check out some of my projects on GitHub.

comment Removing an IP address from the Spamhaus blacklist
@JamesSnell Thanks. In number 2, do you mean to use my ISP's server as a relay? I think I'm already doing this (I'm relaying outbound mail through smtp.comcast.net)? Anyway, I'll contact Comcast and explain the situation and see how I can fix this. I got put on the PBL a few days ago after a spammer found my server was open (and a customer rep said it was ok to host a mail server)... so, I don't know, I suppose Comcast was fine with me sending email from a dynamic IP beforehand.

comment Removing an IP address from the Spamhaus blacklist
Ok, thanks for clarifying that. I suppose it is also possible to get around this without going through the process of contacting them and explaining the situation (I stupidly left my mail server as an open relay after reconfiguring it and a spammer got a hold of it, I have since resolved this) if my IP address changes, as it's dynamic?

I checked the option, changed mynetworks to 127.0.0.1/8, and it works. Thanks for your help!

How do sites get blacklisted anyway?

comment How to have a mail server blacklisted
Just talked to Go Daddy. The site is registered with them, but they have no contact information for the individuals in charge of the site. I'll just create a dummy email address and email their "support" for fun. Anyway, I wish I could get the satisfaction of being able to blacklist those annoying sites...

comment Exposure of information
@RobMoir One more thing. Just out of curiosity, if I programmed the IP address of my server instead of the DNS name, would this work (assume information cannot be retrieved from decompiled app)? They can't spoof the correct DNS information then. Thanks a lot.

comment Exposure of information
@RobMoir Hashing is what I'll do then to prevent the server to talking to compromised apps. I'll also take steps to prevent the app from talking to a fake server. Thanks a lot!

comment Exposure of information
Thanks a lot! Do you think it would be safer if the app and server both knew an algorithm that generated a random value, and unless the app was able to receive this value from the server, refuse to work? Also, is it possible for someone to decompile the app, take this out, and recompile it? I'm very nervous about this (for school), so I want to cover everything. Thanks for your help!

comment Any other configuration for MySQL database?
I says "The mcrypt extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration." That's what it tells me, and I'll look for more modules that I might need. Thanks for your help!
